There are plenty of bunless burger recipes out there but what if you are in one of those moods where nothing but the classic burger and bun combo will do? We have got your back with our Paleo burgers on sesame buns. It’s your traditional burger, meaty beef patty, lettuce, tomato, and onion, all on a soft sesame bun. The difference is you won’t find any grains in this bun, just coconut flour! These burgers may take a little effort to put together since you are making the buns yourself, but they are filling and just like the real thing! The buns should be enjoyed soon after coming out of the oven and sliced open once they are cool enough to handle.

A Short History of the Hamburger

Like many great American dishes, no one can quite agree on who invented the hamburger. There have been claims that it was invented in Texas, New York, Ohio, Wisconsin, and more! However, most historians agree that this first hamburger on a bun was served in Tulsa, Oklahoma by a man named Oscar Bilby at the end of the 19th century. 

From there, hamburgers were spread largely through chain restaurants including Louis’ Lunch, started in Connecticut, and White Castle, started in Kansas. These days, hamburgers can be found in restaurants all across the country, from fast-food to fine dining. The classic hamburger toppings are lettuce, tomato, and onions but some popular additions include cheese, bacon, mushrooms, and even a fried egg.

What Is Psyllium Husk Powder and Why Is It Used in Paleo Baking?

Psyllium husk powder is the outer layer of the seed of the plantago plant. It is a source of soluble fiber and has hygroscopic, which means that it absorbs moisture. 

In gluten and grain free baking, psyllium husk powder can be used as a stabilizer and binder. It essentially takes the place of gluten in the recipe, adding structure and preventing baked goods from crumbling.
